Bradley is 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games, 2-8-1 against the spread following a win, and 0-4 against the spread against a team with a winning record. TCU is 6-1 against the spread in their last seven non-conference games, 6-2 against the spread against the MVC< and 4-13 against the spread following a win.
This one looks like a mismatch so my play is going to be TCU.
